Last August, we closed out the summer with our first FitRetreat, a full day of fitness and motivational sessions at the American Dreaming Magazine Headquarters in Northern Liberties.With less than one month of promotion, our inaugural event brought in 75 attendees, 7 fitness instructors, and 15+ corporate & community sponsors. Women left feeling inspired and motivated to spread healthy living at home, in the workplace and social settings.
We had SO MUCH fun at our mother-daughter workout this past Saturday! So many beautiful moms in attendance! Before she was taken out to brunch, made dinner for or taken to an event, we wanted to make sure there was an option for her to workout before those festivities started! Loud music, team work and friendly mother-daughter competition all took place! (Kanye West – Hey Mama as the cool down had a few of us ready to shed tears!) After class, we enjoyed strawberry-banana smoothies, 22days nutrition bars and conversation. Each mom was given a Mothers Day balloon and special shoutout from their daughter about how awesome she was… So happy all of the moms had a blast! Check out some photos that attendees posted under the #cityfitgirls hashtag on Instagram.

I had the amazing opportunity to interview Dawn Estelle Archer, one of instagram’s fitness sweethearts (with almost 150K followers!), who has completely transformed her body, all by dedicating herself to clean eating and cardio. Due to popular demand, Dawn decided to leave her home in Virgina to teach her SWEAT class across the country. Though recovering from being sick, she was delighted to speak with me while in Denver, CO. I invite you all to check out her site dawn-archer.com and follow her on Instagram at @estellearcher, she will definitely keep you motivated! And don’t forget to check out her #SWEATtour locations, she might be coming to a city near you!
